As for a hood does the HD still have that little extra bulge like the 01-03 HD trucks have. I would go for a more subdued look but still have a good toughness to it.
    i want to keep some of the rake in it, with the wheels, i might have to get the painted ones because they are a little easier to find, and the 06 1500's came with the hd hood so i already have that

    That would be an absolutely beautiful [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]truck[/COLOR][/COLOR] if you did what you showed in the first picture, and use the dual scoop hood. The only problem with that hood is it is fiberglass with a steel reinforced underside, I was looking at buying that exact hood from Good Hoods with the real ram [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]air [COLOR=blue ! important]kit[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] and it came out to $1,200 after shipping and everything. One thing I would add on your truck since your going all "SS" on us, is go ahead and get the SS [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]bumper[/COLOR][/COLOR] and get it painted to match. I would also get some kind of insert for your grille too, whether it be Street Scenes SS mesh or maybe a billet insert in 4mm bars. That would set the front of nicely, oh yeah and don't forget about the back of the truck?? SS style [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]rear [COLOR=blue ! important]bumper[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR], with maybe some LED tail lights?? I really hope you do some of the things you have listed, because that would definately be a head turner.
    i found the hood for 840, but that doesn't include the paint, i was debating between the ss bumper because so many people use them, im still not sure on the bumper, i dont know what im doing to the rear yet or even the grill?

    Do it & leave black as you did, paint black under doors to connect all lines. Use the clear vinyl to protect from chips.

    $850 is way too high for that hood, Summit Racing has it for $650 check out this link.

    Keep an eye out because thy offer free shipping on hoods, usually during when they have there shows and stuff. I think you have a pretty good idea of where your going with the truck, so hopefully you can get some of that stuff done to it.

    thanks, that will bring the cost down, i know i can do the color matching of the handles and pieces between the lights my self, so that will bring the cost down. i plan to do the parts from cost low to high

    I say GO FOR IT MAN. It looks sharp! Have you thought about the SS bumper? Ive seen it on a lowered truck like yours and it looks sweet. Make sure you keep us up to date as you go. Good luck.

    id say do it. it looks good. i think a nice add to all that would be the RST roll pan with the exhuast.
